The Red Devils boss has finally hit back at Jurgen Klopp over the criticism regarding over-spending.
Liverpool boss Klopp had earlier stated he was still baffled with Man United’s transfer spree while claiming that it was normal for both Chelsea and Manchester City to spend big in the transfer market.
Klopp said: “I’m not surprised (that other teams have spent big), because these clubs don’t depend on this kind of thing, I think. We all know the situations at Chelsea, City, PSG. What’s happening at United, I don’t know – I don’t know how they do it.”
United have already splashed out 114m pounds combinedly for the marquee signings of Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane, while the Reds’ only signing of this transfer window, Ibrahim Konate has cost only 36m pounds.
Solskjaer has now replied to Klopp’s criticism, stating that the Red Devils strongly follow the financial fair play rules and have good sponsorship deals. The Norwegian manager also joked that he has started buying electric cars, and the statement must have been aimed at rivals Chelsea and Manchester City for their spending power.
Solskjaer said: “We are a well run club. We do have a lot of fans out there and we do have good sponsorship deals.
“How we get the money, as a manager you want more and more. I have heard ‘no’ a few times.
“How other clubs run their clubs, there are different models at different clubs. I have started buying electric cars! That is all I want to say about that situation.”
